are in favor of robust worker programs. president obama's remarks in las vegas did not mention the guest worker program at all. in 2007 he voted for the union backed amendments to get the guest worker program that helped contribute to immigration reform. the third issue, and this is a big one, the speed and difficulty of a path to agreed and eventually citizenship for any of the undocumented aliens who want to go down that path. the gang of 8 interestingly enough democrat and republican said we want solar more difficult. the president's body language not a specific proposal because he hasn't offered one but the body language sounds like faster and easier. here's the one that is not being paid much attention to right now but there's an underlying battle between if you will roughly bus especially high-tech and other groups, particularly the catholic church over how much immigration should be based upon skill and merit with the business community saying look, if you graduate from american university with science or technology or engineering or math degree we ought to fast track you for a green car
program is something that has been, the bush administration and the obama administration say are authorized by the authorization of use for military force that was passed by congress. and the way that the obama administration is using that is that they're dropping bombs, targeting for killing of terrorist suspects in countries in which we are not at war, including yemen, including pakistan, including places in africa. there is no legal authority for these types of drone attacks. the u.s. cannot drop bombs on people in places that they cannot send troops. it is a mechanism, i think in my view, a political mechanism that says, "it is so much easier to talk about how the wars are over and we're bringing troops home and that we're not putting more troops in harm's way by dropping bombs" there's no legal authority for that. there's no judicial oversight for how they determine who they're going to kill and who they don't want to kill. there's a -- right after 9/11, there was this kill list, there were approximately nine people, al qaeda operatives that the military, the c.i.a. said
the the federal housing administration to play a larger role for those at risk of foreclosure. obama signed the home affordable refinance program in 2010. locally we've done many things. in january 2008, this board of supervisors established a san francisco fair lending working group, with its number one policy recommendation of whenever possible home ownership should be preserved and foreclosure prevented. this promotes family stability in our neighborhoods and community. second of all, the goal of this legislation was to provide security for tenants in t.i.c. buildings. supervisor wiener as coauthor want to ensure that tenants in t.i.c. buildings which might take advantage of this legislation will be presented. we wanted to provide the greatest security possible for existing tenants to be secure in their units and our legislation has done exactly that. let me specifically address this to many of the people in the hallway that seem to be misinformed about this legislation. if you are a tenant in a building that elects to take
from other domestic discretionary programs. president obama is warning that that has to stop. >> washington cannot continually operate under a cloud of crisis. that freezes up consumers, it gets businesses worried. we can't afford these self-inflicted wounds. >> work under a cloud of crisis. joining me now, msnbc policy analyst and "washington post" reporter, ezra klein. good to have you here. before i get to the potential impact of sequestration, do you think it's really going to happen or is congress going to reach a deal to stop these cuts? i point out the countdown is on with only so many days to go. >> i think it might happen. they don't seem to have a good way to stop the cuts. i should just say i think it's $500 and $500 billion on domestic and pentagon side. either way, there's not been really anything even near a deal to deal with sequestration, partially because of how it actually got constructed in the first place. initially, the idea behind the sequestration was it was the backstop for the super committee, meant to be the thing that neither party could allow to ha
time it might save you. >>> president obama is keeping the pressure on congress to take -- the president is on his way back from a visit to minneapolis where he learned more about a program that's showing promise. danielle leigh has the latest on that. danielle? >> hi, pat. president obama has found that where he's been unsuccessful negotiating with lawmakers, he's had great success with the public. that's the great reason for this visit. he found that as public pressure increases, so does action on capitol hill. he chose to visit minneapolis, a city once with an extremely high crime rate and has taken drastic action to reduce the crime race. two years ago they saw a 30-year crime rate low. he talked to them about the steps they've taken and learned more from the mayor that more needs to be done at the federal level. he reiterated his call to congress, with background checks, and limits to the high-capacity magazines. >> we don't have to agree on everything to agree it's time to do something. that's my main message here today. that's why i need everybody who is listens t
. president obama's budget for the 2012 fiscal year called for elimination of the program, despite the positive results. i support getting rid of programs that are duplicative, unproven or unnecessary. especially with the budget pressures we're facing now. however chgme has a proven track record. over 40% of pediatricians in the united states are trained through chgme. 43% of those in subspecialties are trained through the program. the children's hospital of philadelphia runs the largest pediatric residency in the country. the residents will treat children in my community and then move across the country to practice in other communities. we need their expertise now more than ever. last congress i worked with commy democratic counterpart on the -- my democrat counterpart to renew the program. our legislation passed the house of representatives twice in the 112th congress, both times by voice vote. unfortunately the bill was tied up in the senate and was not considered. congressman pallone and i waste nod time in reintroducing the bill this year -- wasted no time in reintroducing the
nonstarter on pathway to citizenship and growers are demanding to see a bacero program. if that's there, you're going to have the afl-cio, big labor down on president obama's neck. >> he did have senator mccain saying that we need to have the pathway to citizenship. >> but the point is that you have a bipartisan -- a very fragile bipartisan debate and it all blows up very easily. if we can go into a rancorous debate similar to what we had in 1994 with 187. >> as you can see, certainly this is an issue that is not going go away. i want to thank you for your insight. we're going to continue to follow the story. tha thanks for joining us. >>> the mass shootings in newtown, connecticut, and other places united advocates and lawmakers. calling for better screening for mentally ill people that could turn violence. ed lee announced plans to put in place a version of little known state law that aims to prevent another tragedy. >> it's time to implement san francisco's version of the so-called laura's law. to help the severely mentally ill who we too often see on our streets. >> for more than ten yea
. the main programs that president obama had were vastly unpopular. obamacare and the stimulus package. republicans had come off the 2010 midterm election and had an epic victory and were thought to be enthusiastic. it's not just that mitt romney lost but then he lost by a substantial margin. republicans lost two senate seats when a lot of people thought they could regain control of the senate. they lost eight house seats. it was a very bad election and a warning sign for the republican party. since then, republicans have been wandering around and try to get their feet under them. there's a realization the partisan trouble and people are not quite sure what needs to be done about it. that is good in a sense that i think now is left 1000 flowers bloom. a lot of people need to offer some alternatives about what needs to be done. host: what is your chief concern? guest: right now the republican party is on a losing track, partly because of demographics. in the last 20 years, from 1992 through 2012, republicans lost 4/6 elections and the popular vote. they have been defeated sadly in many
that the economy is weak from the beginning to the end. the programs of the president obama have not been well received. republicans lost two senate seats. they thought that they could reclaim control of the senate, and they lost eight house seats. since then, republicans are putting their feet under them. a lot of people need to get their oar in the water and talk about what needs to be done. .. a way to appeal to does. so i am a review, one says the republican party lost, that this is an anomaly, the 2010 election showed how much potential the republican party could have and got a candidate like a marker review, he would be fine. and a second school systems are are more systematic republicans problems, based in large measure because the republican party is going to win presidential elections, needs to address this systematic problems. >> a story today saying eric cantor is going to stop pressing about federal spending cuts and talking about helping families according to an aide. the change to a softer track, and the gop collection is to begin tuesday in a speech with virginia republicans deb
the success of these programs got some very high-level tension, and today the president paid minneapolis a visit. he called on congress to follow the city's lead and expand federal background checks. >> obama: all of the folks standing here behind me today, they are the ones on the front line of this fight. they see the awful consequences the lives lost the families shattered. they know what works. they know what doesn't work and they know how to get things done without regard for politics. >> jennifer: they might not be political, but they do have a lot of political power. in an historic moment today, house gop members actually got on board with a bill to curve gun trafficking, and the reason they supported it because it had the backing of law enforcement officials, joining me now is the mayor of minneapolis, r.t. rybak. mayor, welcome back inside "the war room." >> good to be here. >> jennifer: you had a good day today featuring and highlighting what you guys are doing in minneapolis in the push for gun safety. tell us how you see this working. will you end for ex
. general jack keane joins. us. general, always a pleasure to talk to you. president obama argued all along his policy sanctions would force tehran to deescalate its nuclear program. is the evidence clear that it either had no effect or the opposite effect and they escalated their nuclear production? >> you are right on thethey havs nuclear weapon for 20 years. we have been playing in their sand box for 20 years. a combination of diplomatic talks and sanctions. escalating back and forth to their refusal to cooperate. they won't let inspectors in, they won't let us talk to their scientists. but every day the program creeps closer to reality. in the last 6 months since diplomatic talks droak down in june iranians doubled their efforts to develop a nuclear weapon. we are well on our way to this become a reality. gregg: they learned from the israeli attack on iraq's nuclear facility many, many years ago. so these are the main sites that we know about, but there are a total of 20 sites. so they spread out their program. can anyone successfully take it out with tactical strikes? >> yes, we can se

. >> coincidence. >> stephanie: the facts are so opposite. socialist, kenyan obama story line. >> it is. actually, one of the points i mentioned in my ratings piece is not only fox lowest ratingses in 12 years, roger ailes oversees fox business. some of those programs demo viewers are in the five, six 7,000. it is available in 60 million homes. the reason i think fox news has been dormant -- a ratings doormat is because of this dow thing. you know. they've been overseeing four years of this astounding dow jones growth. fox business has been talking about what a disaster obama is. so if fox business can't acknowledge what's happening on wall street because of their ideological filters of course they're going to have problems. it is the same problem that i think fox news is finally having. look fox viewers have never held it responsible for getting everything wrong. we could make an argument people tune in fox news in order to be misinformed. but -- >> stephanie: to feel better. >> absolutely. to feel better. to be angry and to be mad. but again that model seems to have been played out. >> stephani
